More than 190,000 veterans live in Northern Virginia, 11,200 of who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Many of these men and women face barriers to employment, including service-connected disabilities. This number is expected to continue to grow as more returning veterans choose to make the area their home. The Warrior Bridge Program in Virginia will serve as a vital connection to resources and support for wounded veterans as they seek employment, self‐sufficiency and quality of life.
